Thanks - yes, but this is for Platform, not the current GHC.

Platform is several versions older than the current GHC being announced below.
I am not sure if one can update the GHC, with an older Platform installation?

Not a Windows user, but if I recall correctly as today the way to install Haskell on Windows is via Chocolatey:

In the Haskell world the numbers are reversed [1]: Linux-based developers lead the pack. There are comparatively few Windows-based devs and even fewer willing to dedicate their free time to maintain the GHC for Windows build.
